  1. Hi Sandra CCleaner: Thank you for posting that link to the v5.64 Portable build for Win XP/Vista.
  2. Hi hazelnut / Sandra CCleaner: I was looking for the CCleaner Portable v5.64 for XP/Vista (i.e., something like ccsetup564.zip or ccsetup564_xp-vista.zip) that I can run from a USB thumb drive without installation. As Sandra CCleaner noted, the download link at https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/download/portable?os=5.1w3 currently appears to be offering the Slim installer for v5.64 (ccsetup564_xp-vista.exe) in spite of the fact that the URL includes the word "portable" in the URL.
  3. Hi Sandra CCleaner: Thank you for that direct download link. Is that the installer for the slim build, and is there a download link for the portable (.ZIP) version of CCleaner v5.64? Please note that the download link for CCleaner v5.64 in the CCleaner support article Which versions of CCleaner work with Windows XP or Vista? simply redirects users to https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/builds, which is currently offering the latest CCleaner v5.66.7716. From that support article as of today:
  4. I have the same issue with Speccy v1.32.740 which reports "S.M.A.R.T. not available" for the Toshiba KBG40ZNS256G NVMe SSD in my Dell Inspiron 15 5584 (purchased August 2019), even though CrystalDiskInfo has no problem displaying the SMART attributes. See my 22-Apr-2020 images in ZloboMiR's 19-Feb-2020 thread No SSD NVM Info. ---------------- 64-bit Win 10 Pro v1909 build 18363.720 * Firefox ESR v68.7.0 * Windows Defender v4.18.2003.8 * Speccy Portable v1.32.740 Dell Inspiron 15 5584, Intel i5-8265U@1.60/1.80 GHz, 8 GB RAM, Toshiba KBG40ZNS256G SSD, Intel UHD Graphics 620

    No SSD NVM info

    I have the same problem with the Toshiba NVMe SSD in my Dell Inspiron 15 5584 (purchased August 2019). Speccy v1.32.740 reports "S.M.A.R.T. not supported" (see my system snaphot at http://speccy.piriform.com/results/jsOPIebHMX08p7q8vLXeBhg) ... ... while the WMIC diskdrive get status command reports "Status OK"... .. and CrystalDiskInfo v8.4.2 is able to display the SMART attributes and reports the status is "Good". ---------------- 64-bit Win 10 Pro v1909 build 18363.720 * Firefox ESR v68.7.0 * Windows Defender v4.18.2003.8 * Speccy Portable v1.32.740 Dell Inspiron 15 5584, Intel i5-8265U@1.60/1.80 GHz, 8 GB RAM, Toshiba KBG40ZNS256G SSD, Intel UHD Graphics 620
  6. Could someone from someone Avast / Piriform please provide a status update. Dave CCleaner's 22-Oct-2019 post <here> in the the Defraggler board said the broken download links to Portable and Slim builds of Speccy/Defraggler/Recuva would be "reestablished shortly". ----------- 64-bit Win 10 Pro Ver 1903 Build 18362.476 * Firefox ESR v68.3.0 * McAfee LiveSafe v16 (R22) / VirusScan v22.7.150 * Speccy Portable v1.32.740
  7. Hi hazelnut: Thanks for the heads up. It's concerning, though, that Avast/Piriform has known since 10-Oct-2019 that the download links to the Slim and Portable versions of these three utilities are broken and still haven't fixed them. When I'm helping someone troubleshoot a problem and ask them to publish a Speccy snapshot of their system, running Speccy Portable from a USB thumb drive is sometimes their only viable option. ----------- 64-bit Win 10 Pro Ver 1903 Build 18362.356 * Firefox ESR v68.2.0 * McAfee LiveSafe v16 (R20) / VirusScan v22.6.156 * Speccy Portable v1.32.740
  8. Does anyone know why the portable build of Speccy v1.32 (spsetup132.zip) is not posted on the builds page at https://www.ccleaner.com/speccy/builds? Has Avast stopped offering the portable build or are the links on the builds page currently missing? I tried the download link for the the portable build on MajorGeeks at https://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/speccy.html but that link is currently downloading the incorrect "standard" installer (spsetup132.exe). I eventually found an copy of the correct portable build (spsetup132.zip) archived on Softpedia site at https://www.softpedia.com/get/PORTABLE-SOFTWARE/System/System-Info/Speccy-Portable.shtml but when I post download links for other users in help forums I prefer to direct them to the original manufacturer's site. ----------- 64-bit Win 10 Pro Ver 1903 Build 18362.356 * Firefox ESR v68.2.0 * McAfee LiveSafe v16 (R20) / VirusScan v22.6.156 * Speccy Portable v1.32.740 Dell Inspiron 5584, Intel i5-8265U@1.60/1.80 GHz, 8 GB RAM, Intel UHD Graphics 620
  9. Hi Dave CCleaner: According to the 21-Oct-2019 Avast blog entry Avast Fights Off Cyber-Espionage Attempt, Abiss that hazelnut referenced <above>: If I understood that article correctly, hackers managed to access Avast's internal network several times over a four-month period using stolen login credentials and somehow managed to attain domain admin priviledges before these incursions were detected. They might not have managed inject malware into the CCleaner installer as they did in 2017 (see the BleepingComputer article Avast Clarifies Details Surrounding CCleaner Malware Incident for more information about a 2017 supply chain attack where the CCleaner v5.33 installer was infected with a Floxif trojan and released to users) but it sounds to me like "Big Uncle" still has room for improvement when its comes to securing their network access.
  10. Thanks to both Dave CCleaner and hazelnut for their replies and links to blog entries that include further details about this internal network breach.
  11. Does anyone have further details about the "important security updates" in CCleaner v5.63.7450 (released 15-Oct-2019) and whether this update is being pushed out via the CCleaner Emergency Updater to users who do not have automatic updating enabled? Was there a change to the security certificates, or is there an exploitable vulnerability in versions v5.57 and higher that has an associated CVE number? From Ben CCCleaner's official product update announcement <here> :
  12. Hi Dave CCleaner: Thanks for the status update. I was able to publish a system snapshot to the new server this morning, and the URLs for my older snapshots (httx://speccy.piriform.com/results/ ...) seem to be working as well. ----------- 32-bit Vista Home Premium SP2 * Firefox ESR v52.9.0 * Norton Security Deluxe v22.15.2.22 * Speccy Portable v1.32.740
  13. Hi nukecad: My Norton Smart Firewall block isn't new to CCleaner v5.59, at least with the Norton Security v22.15.2.22 (the legacy version for Win XP and Vista) I use. I tested the previous CCleaner Portable v5.58.7209 and the screenshot I posted back on 17-Jun-2019 in the Norton Tech Outpost <here> shows the 32-bit ccleaner.exe v5.58 executable triggers a similar "suspicious online activity" block with my Norton Smart Firewall. I sent Symantec a detailed false positive report (submitted at https://submit.symantec.com/false_positive/) on 17-Jun-2019 but the email I got back that same day stated "Having reviewed the information provided we are unable to reproduce or confirm the issue described." I'm not sure if you mean the "new" Norton 360 v22.17.x Standard / Deluxe / with LifeLock Select products that are currently being sold to US customers only with extra features like Norton Secure VPN, PC SafeCam and Norton Data Protector (see the product comparison chart <here>) but as far as I know all Norton v22.x products use the same protection definitions [e.g., SDS (virus) Definitions, Intrusion Prevention Definitions, etc.] and I don't recall seeing an unusual number of false positive reports for malware detections in the Norton community in the past week. I would agree, however, that some of the new features in recent releases of Norton v22.17.2.x and v22.17.3.x (Win 7 SP1 and higher) have been quite buggy and should have undergone more beta testing before they went into wide release. ----------- 32-bit Vista Home Premium SP2 * Firefox ESR v52.9.0 * Norton Security Deluxe v22.15.2.22 * Malwarebytes Free v3.5.1-1.0.365 * CCleaner Portable v5.47.6701 HP Pavilion dv6835ca, Intel Core2Duo T5550 @ 1.83 GHz, 3 GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS
  14. Hi Dave CCleaner: Could you please explain why my posts were deleted from this thread? I don't believe I violated the forum rules, and I think my comments were relevant to this topic given that my screenshots showed that the Easy Clean feature for CCleaner Portable v5.58 and v5.59 do not cause a CCleaner crash on my own 32-bit Vista SP2 machine like they do for the OP NFern. I tried publishing a Speccy snapshot of my system specs in one of my earlier posts in this thread so NFern could compare the configuration of our 32-bit machines, but Speccy's publishing server still hasn't been fixed even though Avast/Piriform employee Ben Piriform posted <here> on 13-May-2019 that the new server would be "up and running in the next few days". ----------- 32-bit Vista Home Premium SP2 * Firefox ESR v52.9.0 * Norton Security Deluxe v22.15.2.22 * Malwarebytes Free v3.5.1-1.0.365 HP Pavilion dv6835ca, Intel Core2Duo T5550 @ 1.83 GHz, 3 GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS
  15. Hi Andavari: I posted additional comments about my Norton Smart Firewall "suspicious activity" blocks in nikki605's thread <here> since I don't know if the problem NFern reported with Easy Clean is actually related to their antivirus. It was just an idea I wanted to throw out since my Norton AV seems to be constantly blocking the execution of recent versions of CCleaner Portable v5.58 and v5.59 on my 32-bit Vista SP2 machine unless I explicitly allow the execution. ----------- 32-bit Vista Home Premium SP2 * Firefox ESR v52.9.0 * Norton Security Deluxe v22.15.2.22 HP Pavilion dv6835ca, Intel Core2Duo T5550 @ 1.83 GHz, 3 GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS
